Cabrillo National Monument

Dave surprised me with a day outing to Cabrillo National Monument.  He cleverly disguised the start of our adventure as a walk to West Marine.  Then he took me to the bus stop and shared what we were going to do.

The bus ride there took us by Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.  Sure made us appreciate all the service men and women that gave their lives to protect us.

In 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. The park has some great trails and fantastic views.  We will be back to explore more trails.

  2. What a great surprise, Dave. So sneaky! This is one of our must do stops when we visit San Diego. The acres of headstones in the cemetery are quite sobering but it is a beautiful resting place. The tide pools are worth a visit too if the tide is low. So fun!
